Welcome to the Wisconsin Institute for Learning Disabilities/ Dyslexia Inc. (WILDD), a non-profit organization headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin. We teach our clients how to read, spell and become independent learners. We can also help you with other learning needs through one of our many programs.
If your child is struggling with learning, frustrated and "feeling dumb" (a common report from people with learning disabilities/dyslexia) and/or you have learning challenges yourself, we’re here to help--often where others have failed.
WILDD doesn't sell expensive materials for you to learn how to use at home. By contrast, we have live, rigorously trained and dedicated instructors sitting across the table from our clients, working individually and strategically with each client to remediate that individual's reading, language and other academic deficits. Our clients gain fluency and comprehension that assure their ability to become independent learners.
We employ the Carpenter Language Achievement and Strategies System (CLASS™), a therapeutic program of instruction designed specifically to create independent learning strategies for children and adults with specific learning disabilities/dyslexia. This evidence-based method was designed by a former special education teacher who has dyslexia; it is based on scientific research and what works for people with specific learning disabilities or dyslexia.
Information on the How & Why WILDD Works tab will give you a better understanding of the uniqueness of WILDD and how our method raises reading and spelling levels by several years with most clients noticing a significant difference within the first few months.
We have the WILDD belief that everyone who is intellectually capable of learning how to read also has the right to learn how to read. Our results tab provides you with evidence that our method works and our stories and testimony page tells you what real people really think of their experience at WILDD.
Services at WILDD are provided at our Madison and West Allis, Wisconsin centers and through distance learning at any location world-wide.
Our instructors work with both children and adults and we provide services without regard to age, race, ethnicity, gender, religion, national origin, disability, marital status, sexual preference, political or religious affiliation or veteran status.
Come and join us - let us show you what we mean when we say, Life changing!
